Hands Around the World
HANDS AROUND THE WORLD seeks to help vulnerable children around the world, encouraging enthusiastic and well-prepared volunteers to offer practical help, skill-sharing, support and friendship.
We work with a number of partner centres in sub-Saharan Africa and India, supporting them to become viable and self-sustaining. Our volunteers help with building, skill-sharing and support. Our partner centres include schools, vocational training centres, hospitals, children's homes and community projects.
We encourage our volunteers to get involved with the local community they visit and remain involved with the centres and communities.
We believe that first-hand experience encourages our volunteers to help make the world a fairer place.
Please note - we are not currently taking on new centres/projects.
